Every year I try to choose a little different combination of flowers on the Balcony.  It was the third year I was growing my own flowers from seeds. The pots were not so very elegant yet, Yngve tried to be economical and I used all vessels I could find on the place, or I bought the cheapest.
In the middle the south wall with the wooden containers and plastic hanging baskets. To the right - among plastic pots with flowers a blue one, with the rose,'Chrystal Palace'
Above: On the Balcony  the TV-antenna has been mounted. I planted the Polygonum baldaschuanicum just beneath of balcony and it covered all antenna and flowered with white clusters with pink shade until November.
Right: Hanging flower containers on the rail.
Above: On the right side of the pic you can see the trellis, built by Yngve, next door to the balcony-rail, with Russian Wine 
(Polygonum baldaschuanicumon it. 
Below left:  The hanging plastic basket with Erigon karvinskianus and self sown Schizanthus pinnatus 
Left: Hanging plastic basket with trailing Petunia 'Fantasy Pink Morn' still in full bloom in November! It hangs over the wooden container with climbing gourd and many other flowers (below in the middle).
Above: The Balcony, the south side of the house was empty. I tried to decorate it with some plants in pots. There were the table and some chairs too.
On the previous pages I wrote about how Yngves garden started in late autumn 1994 and mostly 1995 - just from beneath the balcony and also on the balcony, if you can call this for garden.. anyway, the balcony has became a nice patio, almost overcrowded by flowering plants in urns, pots, tubs and hanging baskets.
